Yes I know all of you think it's pointless to block it off, but again my ms1 can't control it, and quite frankly I'm not in the mood to go buy all these vvti parts which I don't have, just so it can sit there doing nothing. Anyone that can confirm or deny what I just said above would be much appreciated.
Did your VC not come with the part that goes above where you blocked off? Honestly you might as well just purchase that now, as you will need it eventually. You keep saying you want to block it because your MS1 can't control VVT. You just leave the damn thing unplugged and will work exactly how you want it blocked off, but then when you can control it you just plug in the plug.

Just to answer your question, no you can no just add a plug and feed oil to it.

No "plug" added anywhere in the system will cause oil to be provided to the #1 cam journal. You need to reinstall the spool valve, solenoid, and VVT oil system if you expect that cylinder head to survive its first trip around the block.

I think he means drilling a passage of some sort in the plug. I'm not sure.

OP, I'm going to bust your ***** for a second here.
Those welds don't look like your instagram pics. They look like my welds when I forget to drink water, but choose tons of coffee instead. I'll be able to tell if you go back and run them over with a smoothing pedal, so watch that ****.

Hahaha.

No combination of the words "drill", "plug", or "welding" will result in oil magically traveling through his block-off plate into the #1 cam journal.

I dunno, maybe it's the kick-off campaign for his sister business: Shrapnel Tuning -- a subsidiary of Bullet Fabrication.

no.
well, you're clearly on your way to scrapped motor #2.
so what? I've had sex with at least 15 men.
I really haven't. Cool you can weld. How does that change the fact you're making horrible choices about your miata?

No I cant. Went back and actually read words.

Doesn't change too much.

If you want info on the vvt actuator, read this post started by jasonc sbb: VVT observations - current vs. advance

I wasn't going to do this publicly.

When you publicly insult a positive member, who has been around for years, helping people, and producing good products, that's unacceptable.

It doesn't matter now that you have wasted your chance on this forum, but for future reference, don't insult your future potential customers. I, for example, might have a miata, but I spend 10's of thousands on it, just beacause it makes me happy (at least thats the idea) I dislike that you insulted a fellow forum member, therefore, it makes me not want to give you money for a service.

If you truly want to build a business that survives and thrives long term, you need to listen to your current and potential customers. I was very turned off by our phone converstion. You literally talked over me when i was asking questions. I had to ask the same question 4 times for you to answer it. Dont bother looking into my project, I do not want any part of your work.

Seriously? I took my time to sit and talk to you and answer all of your questions, giving you all of your different options.. you say I spoke over you? That doesn't sound intentional.. I am in a shop environment, it's loud in here, maybe I couldn't hear you taking? You seemed plenty happy with me on the phone, seems like this is stemmed from you reading this conversation. Honesty I'm surprised you're standing on the same side as the guy totally trolling my thread, but whatever. Regardless I have been insulted repeatedly by multiple members of this forum, and I'm done and tired. I'm just going to not post anymore, I don't need this. I came on here not to make customers, I came on here to share this build to those who care about fabrication, not to be a place for people to talk trash about my abilities and tell me my quality is low.. I don't have time for this bs, since nobody seems to care I this will be the last post I put up.

We want to see rad stuff. That's it. Post that sort of thing, and less rebuttals to argument. Post the parts. Like I said before, and I really didn't mean to be insulting. You came in here like a peacock all puffy chested, and didn't deliver. Granted you only had a couple days, but still. It's a good reason to lay low, play it cool and deliver the good stuff.

Dude, I seriously didn't mean to be offensive. What you showed this far, was not what you were touting.

Hopefully you stick around and throw up pics of progress.

Just post build stuff and ignore the rest. Do it for me. Do it for the lion in the cardigan.

Well I just had someone call me who told me that he was hoping to watch through this little build, and that I shouldn't stop posting because someone in here is bothering me.. I suppose I came here to share some photos and that's all I'm going to do, ignoring them is a good idea I suppose. I'm not used to dealing with people doing that to me in real life, people genuinely don't act like that in the real world. I am a very modest and nice person, I don't have any enemies.. I don't understand why I get attacked. Why because I said I'm a master fabricator? Lol that word choice must have made someone upset, but **** you know what? I feel like I can say that without being a *****, because I'm pretty damn good at this stuff.. I can't say that? People never doubt me until I'm on this MIATA forum, it's so crazy lol.

To ryansmoneypit you weren't so bad, there were a few that were unnecessary, a lot of old posts are deleted from here anyways now. I think you need a little patience on what you're wanting to see Ryan lol, it's not done till its done. I don't pulse over my welds when I'm done. I stated already I didn't use a large gas lense, i wasn't trying to keep it pretty and nice. That was a quick pass that will get ground down while ported, and the bit on the outside is going to be welded over with a root, no filler, then a pass with filler. I only do that on the flange, on the runners I only do one pass. Still get full penetration even on single passes. Final welds are with a big cup flooding at 40cfh.

Back to the thread.. Here's some photos I just snapped of where I am right now. Still too many distractions around here with other little jobs. I put aside a week to get this car together from other work, but it tends to make its way in.

only one runner done for now, one on the car and the rest on the bench. Don't mind the non polished runner, it will be shined before welding. I individually tac weld each runner till it's all done, then I break all the tacks on the flange, and on the collectors. At that point I individually wire wheel shine all of the tubes, clean them, and weld them individually, before putting them back on for a final weld.

Feeling pretty toasted right now, but I feel good. Not far now! Still gotta make my wastegate entry, break down the manifold, polish, weld, re-assemble, and final flange and collector welds. Still some days ahead of me before she runs.

I want to say I have gotten this manifold so incredibly equal between the runners I'm surprised it actually worked so well. I'd be seriously surprised if there is more than a 1/4" difference in length between them.
